This model is built for play, shaped by professional gamers and tested for gaming perfection — strong enough storm through the industry's most punishing labs workouts. It was engineered and tested for the finest quality, longevity, performance, stability and compatibility.
Industry-leading 5X Protection technology employs the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee quality and long-term durability of your motherboard with all-round protection. Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times. 5-Way Optimization dynamically adjusts the basic functions of the system based on their actual usage. Whether you’re playing games, working or watching movies, you can always fine-tune your computer’s performance with a single click. The standalone EPU (Energy Processing Unit) chip intelligently regulates current power load, reducing the computer’s energy usage by up to 80%. Meanwhile, Fan Xpert 2+ makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise.
With PCI Express 3.0 slots you can hook up multiple graphics cards. Use CrossFireX or SLI and enjoy playing the newest games at fantastic resolution, just like their creators intended. The model features dual DDR4 3400 MHz support, with capacity up to 64 GB. The motherboard provides 14 USB slots in total, with 6 USB 2.0 slots and 6 USB 3.0 slots. There are also two USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports, offering data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — that's twice as fast as USB 3.0. The sound is handled by an 8-channel Realtek ALC 887 chip, which delivers high-fidelity, near-lossless audio no matter how frantic your game becomes.
Additionally, the motherboard provides 6 SATA 6 Gb/s ports for all your storage needs. There’s also one SATA Express connector for blisteringly fast data transfer speeds reaching 10 Gb/s. And thanks to the unique M.2 interface, you can get 32 Gb/s data-transfer speeds for your SSDs, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.
